Pepperland was part of the score written in 1968 by George Martin for the Yellow Submarine animated film.
Pepperland is the nearest Martin’s score gets to a theme tune for the film, with a strong melody repeated a number of times.
The tune contains, uniquely among the Yellow Submarine compositions, a brief piano interlude. It is also notable for the absence of novelty sounds and musical experimentation, which Martin wove into his other pieces to compliment the visual effects in the film.
Pepperland was the opening track on the second side of the Yellow Submarine soundtrack LP, which was released in January 1969.
